Hope Turns One!

image by Gem Photo

Our precious puppy turned one year old yesterday! {But sometimes still acts like she's 6 months!} Happy birthday, Hope :) You truly bring us hope each day, as we watch you wake up and slide down the hallway at each turn-- immediately so excited to start the new day ahead. Thank you for teaching us about life and love and making us laugh constantly.  We don't know what we'd do without you.

This is my new favorite image of Hope and I from a recent shoot of my bedroom at home. She's so photogenic.  My talented friend Emily of Gem Photo took some stunning images. Will share more soon! There are a few more in my new About the Girl page.

Here's to the joy that sweet pets bring into our lives!
Happy Sunday:)
